Anyone know for certain if the new motor mount is compatible with the old ultimate chassis?

looks like a cheap and feature packed car. Had good luck with the old XI, this one looks very promising

How did the car go together? At $250, this car seems to be a very good deal. Interested to see how the quality is.

It was a good build, had to shim the spool (shims not supplied) and had 5 steel countersunk screws missing but other than that, a good quality kit with some good design features
